From the Oscar-winning production team behind BORN INTO BROTHELS comes WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?, an examination of some of today's most pressing issues:parenting and work, partnering and independence, and economics and art. The film follows four diverse female artists as they navigate the economic, psychological and spiritual challenges of making work outside the elite art world. From Hawaii's Big Island to the suburbs of Ohio, from New York City to the deserts of New Mexico, these women - representing a variety of ages - fight to honor both their vision and their families every day. In seeking this balance, the women find that their art often inspires their parenting and, conversely, their families often inspire their art. WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? also documents the stark gender disparities that exist within the larger arts community, including women's under-representation in art galleries, as well as in the worlds of theater, fiction and feature films.
